FINRA Bars Keith Curtis after Allegations of Conversion of Funds  

According to public records, on November 16, 2023, FINRA, the self-regulator that oversees brokers and brokerage firms, has reportedly barred financial advisor Keith Curtis (CRD#: 4798755from associating with any FINRA member at any time.

Curtis reportedly refused to appear for on-the-record testimony in connection with FINRA’s investigation into his potential conversion of funds. By refusing to appear for on-the-record testimony as requested Curtis reportedly violated FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010.  

FINRA Rule 8210(c) requires registered representatives to provide “information or testimony . . . pursuant to this Rule.” A violation of FINRA Rule 8210 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires associated persons to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade in the conduct of their business.”
